We have been learning so much about space this week as it's Space Week. Our focus has been on satellites. They help us enjoy entertainment from around the world, weather forecasting and monitoring climate changes. We also learned how they communicate and created our own simple messages. We also learned about our favourite planet for homework.
Here is a good mnemonic for remembering the order of the planets from the sun:

We also focused on women in space such as Sally Ride, Mae C. Jemison and Valentina Tereshkova.
Mae C. Jemison now uses satellite information to help monitor those in Africa who might need support.
We are reading ‘James and the Giant Peach’ and we love the crazy characters Roald Dahl created.
We are very honoured to be chosen to plant a tree by the Green Schools Committee as it was National Tree Day yesterday. We love trees in this class. Here is a nice inspirational quote to start off the weekend:
"For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver" - Martin Luther
